Re: Tag tiger woods runs down over night

I have a couple of questions. Do you wear the watch all day? How is your activity level ? If the answers to these is yes and good, then the problem lies in the self winding mechanism.
Without seeing the watch it is imposable to give you a complete estimate of the work needed.

If the stem does not lock in, will it still be waterproof?

You need to get out your jeweler's loupe (best at 5x & 10x)... and look for the threads to "*****" (ski-rue) down your winder-stem (not a lock).

(Features a Ski-rue down crown & back case)

YOU can pretty much be assured that if the "stem" collar is malfunctioning (broken) the "water-proof" element is compromised (that's most likely the least of your troubles).

More importantly... if the STEM does not properly "tighten" it can
cause further damage against gears which MUST align with it... further it can come all the way out and be lost... Not an inexpensive part.

Best direction would be to get it serviced by an authorized agent.

Does t. woods watch require pressure testing w/ battery replcmt?

As long as they don't charge you $40, it should be free. Having said that my machine for testing water resistance cost almost $5000. I have to recoup that somewhere. Now you know why it cost so much. Does it require testing, no. But kon't come crying to me your watch leaked and I was the last to open it. I told you it needed to be tested but you didn't want to spend the $40. That is the view from the other side of the bench.

A friend has a tag heuer tiger woods link that I think is non genuine. It does not have a screw down crown. Does not have a serial or model number on the back and does not say swiss made on the dial. Is it...

Take it to a store that sells them, they will be happy to determine if it is a fake. Take the opportunity to see, feel and appreciate what a real one feels like and you will probably be able to tell in future if it is fake or not. Beware, there are some good 'fakes' out there. And remember, Only fake people wear fake watches.

Tag Heuer Tiger Wood Golf WAE1111.FT6004 Watch stops when not worn. Is there a problem


An automatic watch needs to be worn, wound daily or placed on a watch winder to keep it going. It is not like a quartz watch that has a battery and can keep going when not worn. A modern automatic watch will run for about 36 - 48 hours on a full wind.

A quartz watch that stops like you describe is in need of a cleaning by a professional watchmaker. When this stopping occurs it is an indication the oils have dried out and the warmth from your body heats them so they are semi liquid again and the watch runs. but when the watch cools again the oils harden and the watch stops.

Hope this helps,

Watch was running fine (auto) stopped in middle of night-can shake- second hand does not move

Unscrew the crown and pull out gentle until it clicks outwards twice as if you were going to reset the time and then push it back in and try shaking gently to start the second hand

Tag Heuer Tiger Woods watch stops regularly

You should go back to the watch repair shop and ask for complete check-out of your watch. No watchmaker can return the watch to the customer without properly checking all the gearwork, timekeeping, battery power and all the features the watch has.
As your watch was serviced and the battery replacement took place, the executives of all the work done are responsible for all the faults your watch is having right now.
As watch repairs are quite expensive and time consuming, they (probably) will argue with you about this issue, but DO NOT give up, as these are YOUR consumer rights to ask for the job to be properly done (under warranty or paid by you). In case if you will be turned down, ask for FULL refund and find another shop.
If the repair shop is ready to undertake the job again, do not rush them, as the complete watch overhaul and check may take up to 6 weeks (this MUST be done at no any cost to you if you have the warranty or allready paid for the job).
P.S. I suspect that there is some fault in your watch geartrain, because if it is shooked or moved, the watch works, but when idle-it stops. That means the service of your watch was NOT DONE properly, and some failure or even dirt in geartrain was missed by the watchmaker (sometimes it happens- nobody is perfect!). This doesn't mean you have to agree with it, so, go and get your watch properly serviced and checked out.
Do not forget to rate, please.

The crown is probably a screw down style. The screw down stem is designed to keep the water out and should be screwed shut when not adjusting the watch. Look at the watch stem from the side, look from the 3 oclock to the 9 oclock, you should see the end of the stem. Now turn the stem counterclockwise. After a number of turns, the stem should pop out a bit, it is now ready to set. Most waterproof automatic day/date watches have 4 positions for the stem:

1: screwed down (locked)
2: unscrewed position A
3: unscrewed position B (stem pulled out to first "click")
4: unscrewed position C (stem pulled out all the way.)

Position A:
This is usually used to wind the watch, although some automatic watches cannot be wound by the stem.

Position B:
Used to set day/date. Turning the stem one direction will advance the day and turning it the other direction will advance the date.

Position C:
Used to set the time. Some watches will "hack," a term used to describe the ability to stop the second hand for accuracy purposes.

Be sure the watch is at least a little bit wound before starting theis procedure or it will not run when you get it set!

Unscrew the stem and pull it all the way out to position C. Now turn the stem to advance the time clockwise. Continue turning until the day/date advances, now you know you are in the AM 12 hrs of the day. It is important not to advance the day/date with the stem during the 3 hours before and the 3 hours after midnight, so go ahead and move the time to 8 am.

Now push the stem in sligthly until you are in position B. Sometimes it is easier to go to position A, the out to position B. Once in position B, advance the day/date until it is set for the current day/date.

Pull the stem out to position C. Adjust the time to one minute past the current time. Watch your reference timepiece until it matches your watch and push the stem in when they match.

Your watch is now set! Screw the crown down and wear it in good health.

Hacking. If you stop the second hand at 0 seconds, and wait for your reference timepiece to reach 0 seconds also, you can set the watch to within a second accuracy.

Movement slop. If you advance the time past the time you wish to set your watch and then "backup" to your chosen time, you will remove the slop from the geartrain and make your watch set more accuretly
